Section 3 Match of the Week #3

Hello central New York wrestling community! I hope that you are all doing well. This is Jacob Smith, a/k/a fanofitsince98, and I am ready to break down another Section 3 Match of the Week for you.

We have a good one on top between the Marcellus Mustangs and Homer Trojans, but first, let’s talk about last week’s Match of the Week. Last Wednesday saw Indian River and General Brown do battle in a class of top Frontier League squads, and while the winner of the dual may not have been a surprise, the dominance shown by Indian River might have raised a few eyebrows. The Warriors got five wins by pinfall and three by forfeit, and if that wasn’t enough, they added a tech fall, a major, two decisions, and an unfortunate injury default victory to make up thirteen victories in fifteen weight classes. General Brown held their own at times, and Nick Rogers picked up a solid win early in the dual at 220 to score the Lions their first points. From there, Indian River’s Brady Lynch got a pin at 99 and Caleb Welser scored a 10-8 victory at 106, which helped bring the momentum to IR’s corner. GB got a forfeit at 113, but that would be their last points of the dual, as Indian River won seven in a row to end the dual, including pins from Logan VanTassel (126), Gabe Lynch (152) and Aiden Poe (160). Lynch’s pin was particularly impressive, as it came over a returning Section 3 Place Finisher. Also of note was Alex Booth’s 8-7 victory over David O’Neil at 138. Booth was 1st in Section 3 Division 1 last season, while O’Neil was 3rd in Section 3 D-2, and it looks like their match lived up to a battle between two such talented wrestlers.

Now it’s time to break down this week’s MOTW. Homer and Marcellus are both off to very solid starts to this season. Both are just 1-0 in dual meets, but both picked up wins over solid opponents in their lone dual. Marcellus topped West Genesee 51-29, and Homer defeated Phoenix 57-16. Just last weekend, both teams were at the always-tough Andersen Tournament, and both teams again had good showings. Marcellus actually nudged Homer in the team race, as the Mustangs took 3rd out of 19 teams, while Homer was 4th (10.5 points behind MARC). Will Marcellus again come out on top against Homer -- this time in a dual meet setting -- or will Homer come out on top instead?

Dual Details:

- Marcellus Mustangs (1-0) vs. Homer Trojans (1-0)
- Wednesday, December 11th, 2019
- 6:00 PM
- 80 South West Road. Homer, NY 13077 (Homer Senior High School)

Lightweights (99, 106, 113, 120, 126)

Marcellus: Any problems Marcellus has in the lightweights do not lie with the talent they have from 99 to 126, but that they just do not have enough wrestlers to fill all five weight classes in this area. With that said, the Mustangs are still off to a very solid start in this portion of the lineup. Both Collin Scherer and Carl Santariello are 4-0 to begin the season, and they went back-to-back at the Andersen Tournament when they took 1st place at 99 (Scherer) and 106 (Santariello). Ethan Ciota is also off to a decent start, as he is 3-2 and went 2-2 at the Andersen.

Homer: Just like Marcellus, Homer also has some solid talent in their lightweights, but they don’t have enough wrestlers to fill up each spot from 99 to 126. The wrestlers they do have include Chancler Kiner, Jacob Rice, and Jeffrey Stauber. Rice is one of Homer’s best pound-for-pound wrestlers, as he is fresh off of a 2018-19 season where he had over 30 wins, was Runner-Up in Class B, and took 5th in Section 3. Rice is currently 4-1 after taking a 3rd at the Andersen, while Kiner is 4-2 after a 5th place showing at the Anderson, and Stauber is 3-2 after a 2-2 day last Saturday.

Middleweights (132, 138, 145, 152, 160)

Marcellus: The middleweights might be the strongest part of the lineup for Marcellus. Leading the way here is two-time New York State Tournament Qualifier Dylan Price, who was a Section 3 D-2 Champion last season. Price is currently 4-1 and was a Runner-Up at the Andersen Tournament. Also playing a key part in Marcellus’s lineup from 132 to 160 are Ryan Moses, Trevor Widrick, and Tim Okhman. Okhman is off to the best start this season out of the trio, as he is 5-1 following an impressive 4-1 showing at the Andersen. Moses and Widrick are both hovering around .500 right now, but both were Class C Runner-Ups last season and both have had over 20 wins each of the past two seasons.

Homer: If it wasn’t obvious yet, Homer and Marcellus seem pretty evenly matched. Just like Marcellus seems to have a strong middleweight portion in their lineup, Homer does as well. For starters, Kaiden Haynes comes in at either 132 or 138. Haynes is a two-time Section 3 Placer, and he just took 3rd at the Andersen Tournament. Ryan Opanhoske is coming off of a solid 3-2 day at the Andersen, and he joins a group of other Trojans, like Carter Monroe, Jakob Denkenberger, David Morse, and Zander Johnson, as wrestlers who are off to a decent start and hovering around .500 right now in the early season. Monroe and Johnson were both Sectional Qualifiers last season.

Heavyweights (170, 182, 195, 220, 285)

Marcellus: Marcellus has a few wrestlers from 170 to 285 that are off to solid starts in the 2019-20 season. Zachary Grolling, for example, is 4-1 and just took 3rd at the Andersen Tournament. Wilvon McKee is also at four wins on the season, as he is 4-2 after tying for 5th at the Andersen. Aiden Stasik joined McKee in going 3-2 at the Andersen, and he finished in 6th place at the end of the tournament.

Homer: One of the most impressive junior high varsity wrestlers of 2018-19 was Homer’s Sam Sorenson. Sorenson was wrestling as a heavyweight as just an 8th grader, but he took a solid 4th in Class B, had over 30 wins on the season, and was just one win away from placing at Sectionals. Sorenson is 4-2 so far this season, and he finished 6th in the Andersen. Tavyn Malchak was 4th at the Andersen for Homer, and both he and Allan Markley were 2-2 at the tournament and are 3-2 so far this season.

Final Words

We seem like we are dealing with a dual meet between two evenly matched teams in Marcellus and Homer. As a result, this should be a very solid Section 3 Match of the Week, and of the three duals that have earned MOTW honors so far this season, this one may have the closest final score. It’s a tough call to decide on a potential winner, but I see Marcellus edging out Homer after winning eight matches to Homer’s seven.

Wrestling is a simple sport. When you step onto the mat, it's you versus someone else. There's not much fancy equipment or anything else. It's not about anything, other than strength and skill and heart. It's about being Built to Lead.

Built to Lead Wrestling presented by the USMC Sports Leadership Academy provides you with first-class instruction from elite coaches. But, more than that, it provides you with intangible skills that make you Built to Lead.

Through a partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps, you will learn what it takes to be the best, to be the first in the gym and the last to leave it.

At the event, participants will participate in skill sessions, as well as receive a Built to Lead Evaluation at the end of the day. Between skill sessions and evaluation, participants will have the opportunity to be challenged, motivated, and to interact with members of the U.S. Marine Corps and learn key skills from the men and women who best exemplify what it means to lead. What it means to have enthusiasm and integrity, courage and loyalty, initiative and endurance.

Every player needs these skills. Every coach wants these players.

Do you have what it takes?  Are you Built to Lead?
